We all know to look at the official documentation. Here are some less obvious places to look for answers:

  • the project’s Discord, Slack, IRC channel, or mailing list
  • code search (search all of GitHub for how other people are using that library!)
  • GitHub issues (did someone else have the same problem?)
  • release notes (is the bug fixed in the new version?)
  • a book chapter (you might have a book on this topic!)
  • blog posts (sometimes there’s an amazing explanation on the 2nd page of Google results)
